Central Park Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Very accommodating for my Vegetarian Friend. Unfortunately the risotto that we ordered was undercooked. Obviously rushed to cook. The kernels of rice were broken up and the centers were hard. Risotto should have recognizable kernels and tender centers this was not so this evening. I loved the free Truffle Fries with the YELP check in. and my friend said the au gratin potatoes were very good.
The service was excellent & our server took every precaution with my selection as I am gluten free.
It was fun to see my visiting nephew before he goes off again to the Persian gulf for his continued navy service.
My only issue is the noise level is quite loud. I think it has something to do with all the hard services (wood).
Central Park reminds me of a place my grandma frequents with her friends. The food was average (french onion soup was good, steak would not be a repeat order but the sides were filling). But, we had a nice bottle of wine and the service was good. We had a table in what felt like the green house side. Lots of windows with natural light only downside was a view of a parking lot.
We went for LA Dining Week - the choices were broad in each category and the cost of the meal was very reasonable. I ordered the NY steak and it was excellent. Prepared exactly as I asked. The server was attentive and friendly. Overall, a great dining experience.
We had a DineLA lunch at Central Park Café last Sat. This café didn't allow us to have any reservation till 2:15pm on Sat. So we decided to take our chance arriving at 1pm. The restaurant was not full at all and we were able to sit down right away. This was our first visit to this place. The environment was fairly casual.
We ordered from the DineLA menu - Crab Tower and Park Burger. Frankly the Park Burger was no special at all. It was supposed to be cooked medium but it turned out to be quite well done. On the other hand we were quite impressed by the Crab Tower. There were three layers in this crab tower. Top layer was the crab salad followed by the avocado salad in the middle and the papaya salad at the bottom. There was good amount of crab inside the crab salad layer. It was quite a tasty dish especially for summer time.
Overall the food was fine and the service was nice.
Service was excellent. Our waiter, Jacob was friendly and gave great recommendations. The food was amazing. We went for Dine LA Week. Two of us chose from the pre fixed menu. All of our choices were delish. We all had the crab bisque and it is tasty with just the right balance of flavor and creaminess. We all enjoyed our entrees. The NY steak was tender and flavorful. The steamed spinach was excellent. The au grautin potatoes were yummy. The shrimp, mushrooms, and truffle pasta was amazing. The Bologanse was excellent. Dessert was outstanding.
We had the key lime pie and chocolate decadence cake. They were both out of this world.
Only down side was being seated in the corner in the very front of the restaurant. Which was not crowded at all. We were early for our reservation but it wasn't a problem since they sat us right away.
Still had a great dinner with great friends.
This is a place you would come to over and over. It's a kitchy kind of place and I say that with a very warm heart. The food is excellent, slightly oily or buttery for my particular taste not my husbands. The portions were great and the value was perfect. We did the Dine L.A. menu and left with a key lime pie since it was a lot of food for me. Delicious. Service was perfect. The people were fun and interactive and we just had a great time. Big parties are welcomed, families, couples, all are welcomed. Enjoy!
Second time here with same friends. Food is always delicious. Drinks are very good also. Service was excellent, we had Wesley. Crab bisque very good. Had the porterhouse pork chop last time was outstanding, tried the shrimp with pasta in truffle sauce, delicious. Will be back but next time would like to come or breakfast which I heard is very good.
made reservations thinking we can have late breakfast/brunch well open table doesn't allow to make reservations before 2:15. When I called the restaurant if we can come in 1 hr prior they said they do not take reservations and I explained myself we were coming in for breakfast but know one had mentioned that breakfast stop serving at 1pm. Total disappointment and it is not a hidden gem like stated, the restaurant was empty during the time we arrived and only few tables were seated but for lunch. Lunch menu had nothing good but because we came from so far away we decided to make the best out of it. No, everything was greasy and no taste what so ever
This is a classic neighborhood restaurant - a hidden gem - so good I am hesitant to let others know about it! It has great food - a charming staff and a comfortable atmosphere. They really have thought of it all - girls ( woman) check out the restroom with the never run out paper towel and that oh so awesome picture of my favor icon on the wall!
